Alya Hatta is a 21-year-old artist currently pursuing her masters at the Royal College of Art, after completing a Fine Art degree at Goldsmiths, University of London.
She is a multi-disciplinary artist focusing on painting, VR and installation artwork, yet keen on always learning and evolving her practice. Her interests lie in exploring identity, specifically the Malaysian identity and what this means in different contexts. Ideas of immigration, alienation and culture are poignant in her works. She draws off of both historical and contemporary issues and influences, marrying them together to create a unique gaze through the culturally coded body.
